A moving, funny new novel by one of Australia's best-loved authors.

Adjusting to a new country and a new school was never going to be easy for Herschelle. The food is strange, it's so different to South Africa and, worst of all, no one understands the Aussie slang he's learnt on the web.

But it's the similarities that make things really hard. Herschelle will have to confront racism, bullying and his own past before Australia can feel like home...

A moving, funny new novel by one of Australia's best-loved authors.
